Did you hear about the new app called UBMe? There are plenty of smartphone apps available out there to help users connect with people nearby. But Val Arzunian is taking a different approach. He’s the creator of UBMe, a free proximity-based networking app that allows users to connect with other people using the app, not just within a nearby radius, but who are physically located at a specific place, whether its a business, bar, college campus, concert, festival, sporting event, or something else entirely. How great would it be to see what events are going on in the area that are kid-friendly, ask other parents about recommended daycares and babysitters, or ask for suggestions about fun things to do with your kids on a rainy day?
You can also use the event section to create events that would be seen by other parents in the area. The difference between UBMe and other social media is that your posts are reaching anyone in your local area who the posts are most relevant to.
UBMe is the latest tenant at Pi: Partnership for Innovation, a Bethlehem startup business incubator located on Evans Street, which hosts technology companies, social media firms, and software development companies.
